, with the senate set to consider gunlation after its spring recess, michael bloomberg and wayne lapierre are both promising to invest millions in that coming legislative fight. bloomberg's group, mayors against illegal guns, announced it will spend $12 million, all of the mayor's money -- not all of it, has plenty more, on ads like this one to push democratic and republican senators to back gun control efforts. >> for me, guns are for hunting and protecting my family. i believe in the second amendment. and i'll fight to protect it. but with rights come responsibilities. that's why i support comprehensive background checks. >> 90% of the public wants something, and their representatives vote against that. common sense says they are going to have a price to pay for that. >> he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. they don't want him in their restaurants. they don't want him in their homes, they don't want him telling them what food to eat. they sure don't want him telling them what self defense firearms to own, and he can't buy america. >> nbc's de
. they will not relent. they will go forward. >> the nra. >> same way. >> wayne lapierre has driven this cane now since aurora when he came on before and since sandy hook. he has continued to do it. here's the thing about lapierre though. he has flip-flopped on these key issues. take background checks. here's what he said in 1999 about background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show. no loopholes anywhere for anyone. we do not, because the fact is the law right now is a failure the way it's working. the fact is that you have 76,000 some people that have been denied under the present law. only 44 were prosecuted. you're letting them go. they are walking the street. >> absolutely shameless. also, wayne lapierre, said previously that schools should be gun-free zones. now he said everyone in the school should be armed. the man does any u-turn that suit him, and yet he's winning this war in washington. why is he winning it? why does the nra continue to wield this power? i've got a tweet here from ted nugent. ask michael
late. pick up your phone and call congress now or wayne lapierre will win. ♪ ♪ >>> we are watching an orj of gun violence. >> two brutal murders in colorado. >> they call us craze. >> there are current laws at the state and national level are swiss cheese. >> you just shoot. >> weir trying to keep guns out of the hands of people who committed murder. >> they call us craze. >> that male marine had first shot and killed the woman and then turned the gun on himself. >> think about newtown. think about newtown. >> they call us crazy? >> literally, kids went and shot her baby through the head. shot that baby dead. >> and they say we're crazy? >> does anybody need a hundred-round drum of ammunition. does anybody need that other than the military or licensed police? >> no. >> dragged out of a city bus and shot to death in front of witnesses. >> three people are dead after a late-night shooting. another day, another shooting. >> orgy of gun violence. they call me crazy. ♪ ♪ ♪ >>> we are watching developing stories on multiple fronts this afternoon. the president is continuing his mid
. >> that is wayne lapierre head of the nra. this guy he was referring to is new york mayor mike bloomberg. here with us now is democratic senator from pennsylvania and member of the foreign relations committee, senator bob casey and former governor of pennsylvania, msnbc political analyst and co-chair of fix the debt campaign, governor ed rendell. you guys, pennsylvania. huge state. huge sprawling state. filled with sports people, hunters, gun owners, the vast majority of them responsible. where are you on what wayne lapierre said? >> well, we have a million hunters in the state. as ed knows, it's a big part of our culture and pennsylvania. after newtown i spent a lot of time thinking what happened there and i made a pretty substantial shift in my position. i think we should have not only a vote but pass some of the measures we have been talking about, the assault weapons ban, the magazine clip legislation, if we can get to that, and the background checks. there could be others but those are the three main ones. even if it's only done by way of amendment when we get to the legislation itself. >
guns. you know what's going on here. >> if wayne lapierre is the country mouse, he may be the only making money to preach the kind of stuff he preached yesterday. he tries to make this about mime bloomberg and nra. that's a waste of an important national moment when everybody in this country, nra member, gun owner, and person who has never looked at a gun in their life, aught to be having a conversation about where there is common ground. in discussing this with people out in the country since newtown and for the past five years. despite what you hear on news programs, there's actually an enormous and pretty durable consensus about what you would do if you wanted to save a lot of lives but at the same time respect the rights of law-abiding citizens. it's background checks. that's what everyone agrees on. >> i think they do. the numbers sure prove it. anyway, mayor mike bloomberg of new york argued yesterday the public is on his side when it comes to background checks in particular. polls show nine out of ten americans support the background check. lapierre chose to blame the messen
." that is kind of thing i think wayne lapierre was pushing on sunday on "meet the press." pushing the idea it's about mike bloomberg, not about your own safety from guns. >> well, a couple of things. that's all we can ask for is pryor listens to arkansans. they think every gun buyer should get a background check no matter who they buy the gun from or where they buy it. this get background checks because they buy them at licensed dealers. if you buy the gun online or buy the gun at a gun show, there's no background check. that's where the criminals and seriously mentally ill go to get their guns. all we want is to close that loophole. we think it's going to happen and think it will happen with senator pryor's support. >> what do you think of lapierre yesterday? he is trying to make it one of these country mice against the city mice. he's trying to basically say if you want to sand up against your community against the big shots from gotham, you can vote for more guns. you know what's going on here. >> if wayne lapierre is the country mouse, he may be the only making money to preach the kind of
gun owners. >> already supported background checks. >> wayne lapierre greed with that back in the 1990s. he was one of 85% in the 1990s until, i guess the gun manufacturers told him to change his position. >> right. >> okay. >> right. now he parades around with this clown show literally say if they take the rapist gun from the rapist, they will come after your gun. >> if we scream rapists from getting guns and doing a background check to see if they have been a rapist or felon, we are somehow violating other americans' rights? that's just a lie. >> here is eugene robinson what he writes in "the washington pos post". the worst way to respond to the shocking massacre in newtown, connecticut, would be to let political self-interests stand in the way of meaningful action. the parents of those 20 slain children deserve a vote on the assault weapons ban. the families of 30,000 americans who will be killed by gunfire this year deserve a vote. bringing the measure to the floor of both the senate and the house is the least congress can do. we all know what is happening here. senate democrats fa
. they are financing the nra. that means there is more money now for wayne lapierre. >> financing the republicans and a few of the weasely democrats. >> what's the answer, michael? >> there is only one answer. >> what is the alternative to the nra to stand up, well funded, powerful and to do to the pro gun rights lobby what they do to democrats now and make them cow in fear. >> myself and a few hundred thousand americans this saturday night are going to get together in our living rooms, invite friends and family over and have this virtual discussion on the internet. we are going to watch "bowling for columbine" and we are going to organize this grassroots. that's all i can say. i'm tired of sitting around. i haven't sat around. i have dealt with the issue since columbine. >> what are we waiting for? the next mass shooting? the next movie theater? school? >> i would ask that to harry reid. if you could get him on i would say, how many more sandy hooks before you would not stand in front of a microphone. >> come on the show, harry reid. i have invited senator reid for two years. >> let's kill anoth

. but they also believe that this idea of extended background check will not help. let's hear what what wayne lapierre had to say about that this morning? >> the universal check is a dishonest premise. there is not a bill the hill that provides a universal check. criminals aren't going to be checked. her not going to do this. shooters in tau son, aurora, newtown, they are not going to be checked. >> reporter: so -- another concern of the nra is that this -- expanded background check is just one step towards a kind of universal gun rej instrument which a lot of -- gun owners are worried about. so they are stress hag in some of their ads as well. >> athena jones in washington. thank you. >>> the u.s. supreme court prepares on weigh in on the same-sex marriage debate, this is what is going on in france. a rally against gay marriage gets violent. atient. i spend long hours with her checking her heart rate, administering her medication, and just making her comfortable. one night britta told me about a tradition in denmark, "when a person dies," she said, "someone must open the window so the soul c
the face. michael bloomberg and national rifle association ceo wayne lapierre were both on "meet the press" today. bloomberg announced a $12 million campaign he is personally paying for, and it's aimed at convincing swing senators to support universal background checks. >> 90% of the public wants something. and their representatives vote against that. common sense says they are going to have a price to fay for that. >> he is going to find thought is a country of the people, by the people and for the people. and he can't spend enough of his $27 billion to try to impose his will on the american public. >> bloomberg's ad campaign by the way is scheduled to air in 13 states. the senate is scheduled to debate federal gun control legislation next month. >>> the supreme court turns its attention this week to an issue that is a subject of shifting public opinions, same-sex marriage. there were rallies in support of it today in new york and other cities. nbc's justice correspondent pete williams reports. >> reporter: two gay couples in california are asking the court to strike down proposition 8, e
a counterbalance to the nra i find wayne lapierre's comments just sort of bizarre. he is basically saying that the nra can do what they do. they can run ads of the they can try to persuade senators to vote a certain way but nobody else can. and i don't think running ads is imposing your will on people. i think it is running ads and letting people be informed and make a decision and being an advocate. mayor bloomberg is being an advocate for a position and there is nothing wrong with that. heather: rich, what do you think?. >> i think that is basically right. it is a free country. you can spend as much money as you want. i think the reason why you saw a such a strong reaction from wayne la pierre going to opening marks of the segment nra, would love, love, mayor bloom to be public face of gun control in america. the man associated with intruding himself into ordinary's people he is business. who wants to ban and prohibit a bunch of different things so the nra loves this fight with mayor bloomberg. heather: really what he is trying to do here is influence votes by senators prior to the deba
